Improbable Previews: Fearing the Impending Reboot in X-Men Red #2

Posted by February 27, 2018 Comment

Every so often (but seemingly less so since we started this column), comic book publishers send out previews of upcoming comics without any of the words added. The result, while nice to look at, fails to give readers a sense of what the final product will actually be like, which is, after all, the purpose of a preview.

Thankfully, there’s a better way! We’ve wasted decades reading comic books, so we can pretty much tell what’s happening in any comic just by looking at the pictures. In that spirit, we’ve completed these unlettered previews ourselves, using our best guess at what the dialogue will be. We can’t guarantee 100% accuracy, but we can guarantee that it’s more fun than looking at the unlettered art.

In this issue of Improbable Previews, Marvel tried to slip this unlettered preview of X-Men Red #2 past us in a CBR interview, but we found it, and we’ve lettered it! X-Men Red #2, by Tom Taylor, Mahmud Asrar, and Ive Svorcina, is in stores on March 2nd. But here at Bleeding Cool, and only at Bleeding Cool, you can get a sneak peek at where the story is going!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
